Allison Rae Refford, 37, formally of Downingtown, passed peacefully at Aria Hospital of Bucks County on Saturday, April 2nd, 2016. 

Born at Chester County Hospital to Deborah Clark-Busbee. She graduated from Downingtown Area School District in 1997. Allison's love for helping others inspired her to work in retail and as a photographer for the majority of her life. She worked for many portrait studios, Wawa and she was also a manager at GameStop. 

Allison had a very special love for sports. She was an avid Boston Red Sox fan. She often expressed herself through music and her photography.  Ally loved capturing beautiful life moments through her camera. 

Allison will be remembered as a woman who had an infectious laugh and an amazing sense of humor.  It was so easy for her to make everyone around her laugh. Allison had a special place in her heart of gold for children. She will be greatly missed by her niece, Raelyn Marie who is named after Allison. Allison was also a wonderful and loving God mother to Cody and Alexys Taylor.

Allison had a heart of gold, she always wanted to help others and she will continue to do so through the lives of the recipients of her most precious gifts. Ally was an organ donor, and through her passing was able to heal at least six people who were in need of organs to continue their lives with loved their ones. 

In addition to her mother, Allison is survived by her life sisters Jamie Cook-Busbee of Christiana, and April Hankinson of Ephrata. She is also survived and missed dearly by many aunts, uncles and cousins.

My sincere condolence.  Alli will be missed very much by so many people.  She was a very sweet and loving young lady that made my grandchildren happy to call her their special Aunt.  She showed them much love and a lot of fun.  May she rest in peace and know that she is thought of and loved every day.
